Waiting on Wednesday [6]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking The Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating!

This week I'm waiting on Beauty Queens by Libba Bray!

From bestselling, Printz Award-winning author Libba Bray, the story of a plane of beauty pageant contestants that crashes on a desert island. Teen beauty queens. A "Lost"-like island. Mysteries and dangers. No access to email. And the spirit of fierce, feral competition that lives underground in girls, a savage brutality that can only be revealed by a journey into the heart of non-exfoliated darkness. Oh, the horror, the horror! Only funnier. With evening gowns. And a body count.

I really liked Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle Trilogy so I'm hoping that I'll enjoy this book too! It sounds super hilarious but also a little bit edgy. I'm expecting a lot of cat fights and mental breakdowns!!! Should be pretty interesting.

I have to say that I'm not a big fan of this cover. Its sort of cheesy. A girl in a bikini wearing a bullet holder full of lipsticks? Yeah just a bit strange. Plus I just know that when I check this book out from the Library my brothers are going to say "Oh my gosh, Julia WHY are you checking out a book with a girl in a bikini on the cover? It's DISTURBING!!!" :P

Beauty Queens is coming out on May 24th just in time for summer! Oh my gosh summer is only like a month away! Are you guys excited? I'm excited!!!

Julia :)


  1. You're very right about this being a great summer read. I'm a huge fan of Ms. Bray so I'll be snatching this one up too!

    My WoW

  2. I'm not a fan of the cover either, but I am excited for this one! Great choice :)

  3. I want to read this SO badly. Libba Bray is amazing, and this looks as crazy and fun as Going Bovine, haha.

    Love you layout! The bright colors really remind me of spring :)

  4. Ooh, I just finished this one! I got it for review and it's such a brilliant satire!
